Islam has been reforming. What is today called “radical Islam” is the reformation of Islam. It follows the .. logic of the Protestant Reformation— prioritizing scripture over centuries of tradition and legal debate—but with antithetical results that reflect the contradictory teachings of the core texts of Christianity and Islam.Islamic literacy rates have risen above 40% (See Ibrahim) and the Koran is now as available to Muslims as the Bible once was to Europe's first Protestants. The "Back to the Quran" movement (Sola Scriptura) finds plainly stated teaching:
The Koran and Hadith call for war, or jihad, against all non-believers, until they either convert, accept subjugation and discrimination, or die.
Islam's prophet himself decreed, “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.”
The Koran allows polygamy—up to four wives—and the possession of concubines, or sex-slaves.
The Koran permits lying; the prophet himself often deceived others, and permitted lying to one’s wife, to reconcile quarreling parties, and to the “infidel” during war.
